Event Description

“Experience plus Reflection = Learning” – John Dewey

Building on the earlier work of John Dewey, the educational theorist David  Kolb proposes a “learning cycle” comprising different stages by which learning happens through the transformation of the learner’s experience. In this workshop you will explore Kolb’s experiential learning cycle, discuss its value in your teaching contexts, and find ways of integrating this model into your lesson planning and teaching. Join us for an interactive session to connect this important teaching model with your teaching practice.

Facilitators: Rowshan Rahmanian & Lucas Wright
